Singing Your Own Song - Short Course
Finding Your Voice: individually tailored singing lessons
Music Education, Singing, Music Lessons
Singing can be a joyful feeling in which you rewardingly express yourself. When the song you sing is one you've written this feeling can be both even more fulfilling, and initially even more nerve wracking. "Sing Your Own Song" is a short course offered by "Finding Your Voice" which offers a safe and supportive environment in which to develop songwriting skills, create a song, and perform it to supportive people. It is appropriate for complete singing/musical novices, experienced musicians, and anyone between those extremes. It can be taken as a course for personal development, or as a way to expand your songwriting into new directions and find new sources of songwriting inspiration.
